Refractive lens exchange

Through this technique we treat refractive defects from 50 years of age on, of both myopia and hypermetropia combined with astigmatism, in which the accommodation has stopped acting.

The technique consists of changing the patient’s lens with an intraocular lens that corrects the refractive defect.

This type of intraocular lens can be of different types depending on the needs of the patient, seeing from far, intermediate or near distance.

This decision is made after a thorough study and discussion with the patient about his priorities.

The surgery that lasts about 15 minutes is performed by topical anesthesia in a one day clinic
